scientific name

Inula bifrons L.
status

 

Conyza bifrons Linnaeus  , Species Plantarum 2: 861. 1753.

"Habitat in Pyrenaeis, Canada." RCN: 6224.

Lectotype (Pruski in Sida 21: 2032. 2005): Herb. Clifford: 405, Conyza  3 (BM-000647043)  .

Current name: Inula bifrons L.  ( Asteraceae  ).

Note: Although some authors have assumed that Linnaeus (Sp. Pl., ed. 2, 2: 1236. 1763) subsequently transferred C. bifrons  to Inula  , restricting it to the European taxon, it seems clear that this was not the case. On p. 1207 of the same work, Linnaeus also treated C. bifrons  , with the same diagnosis as in 1753 but with only the previously cited Plukenet polynomial in synonymy. The Hermann reference was transferred to the synonymy of I. bifrons  , along with three new synonyms. Inula bifrons  is evidently a new name in Inula  for the European plant (albeit with the same epithet), and not a new combination in Inula  of Conyza bifrons  . See notes by Godfrey (in J. Elisha Mitchell Sci. Soc. 68: 264. 1952).
